Some kids have and some kids don't And some of us are wondering why. Mom won't watch the news at night There's too much stuff (that's) making her cry. We need some help Down here on earth A thousand prayers, a million words But one voice was heard.
A house, a yard, a neighborhood Where you can ride your new bike to school. The kind of world where mom and dad Still believe the golden rule Life's not that simple Down here on earth. A thousand prayers, a million words But one voice was heard.
One voice, one simple word Hearts know what to say. One dream can change the world Keep believing till you find your way.
Yesterday while walking home I saw some kid on Newbury Road He took a pistol from his bag And tossed it in the river below. Thanks for the help Down here on Earth. A thousand prayers, a million words One voice was heard. One voice was heard. One voice was heard.
